Customer Question
Our stove top, up/down...

Our stove top, up/down draft vent, will not stop auto. We can manually stop the vent, but once stopped the fan will not switch on.

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

We have had to manually stop the vent for a few months, the fan just stopped this week.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I can try or will call someone.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that i can think of..
